A Mermaid Picnic


To go along with our mermaid theme this week, I made my girls a surprise mermaid picnic.



Our menu included a hot dog octopus, berry jello "ocean" cup with goldfish, a watermelon seahorse (yeah, I had no clue it was a YELLOW watermelon until I cut into it), and the pièce de résistance: a mermaid tail smoothie push pop.


I recently bought this 4-Piece Silicone Ice Pop Set from Amazon and have been loving them. For this meal, I simply blended a frozen banana with a handful of strawberries, filled the molds, and let them freeze for a couple hours. To turn the push pop into a mermaid tail, all you have to do is cut out a whale tail shape from adhesive-backed craft foam.


The girls loved their special meal... and I had a lot of fun preparing it!
